Advantages: Removes stains very well indeed.
I bought this product a very long time ago because sometimes stains are not removed from clothing when they are deep down in the fibres. My grandchildren's clothing is sometimes stained and the babies bibs get a little dirty and I use this product to help remove those stains.
It is like a bar of soap and all you need to do is wet the bar or dampen the clothing and rub the bar onto the stained area. I just keep on rubbing gently for a minute or so and then just pop the garment into the washing machine. You do need to take care not to rub too hard onto the fabric because you could ruin the garment, just gentle rubbing is enough to remove the stain and remove the food etc.
I usually use an old towel to place the garment onto just so that it doesn't slip around etc. The towel just holds the garment in place a little better so that I can rub it easier.
It works for tackling stubborn stains such as dried in chocolate. When my grandchildren have made a real mess of their clothes, I use this stick just to make sure the stain is completely removed from their clothing. I don't use it for every wash because usually my washing detergent removes the stains well but I do use it if some of the garments are not quite as clean as I wanted them to be and I just give those items a rub with this bar and then just wash them again if I haven't used it to pre wash. I usually use it before I was the garment but occasionally have to use this stick a second time if the detergent hasn't worked so well.
The bar is solid and so can be held in the hands and I find it does become a little slippery sometimes but that isn't a problem. It just leaves a slight residue on the garment but the residue is completely removed after it has been washed.
I have had this bar for quite some time and I think I paid a couple of quid for it at the time, it has kept well in all this time and still works well. I think it is good value for money and works very well indeed to remove stains really well. It is cheap to buy for removing stubborn stains from garments.
I can removes tea, coffee, wine, chocolate and most foods from garments. If the stains isn't removed I would re apply and then wash it again.
It contains no bleach or abrasives.
I am very happy to recommend this product to anyone who has children or grandchildren and also want to remove stains from adults clothing too.
I will keep on buying this product because I find it helps to remove stains really well indeed and it gives me piece of mind that when I see my grandchildren eating chocolate etc, I know I can rely on this product to remove it from their clothing.
I rate it 5 stars.
Summary: Removes stains well.
